Freshers & Giveaway!

It feels like only yesterday I was starting at university and now I am going into my second year! For those of you who are just starting there is no need to panic although everything is different (the environment, the work etc.) Uni is pretty amazing and you'll have an awesome time. The main reason for this post is to chat to you about one of the main things of student life which everyone looks forward to, FRESHERS. So what is freshers? Basically its a week or two of getting very drunk and meeting new people who are at your university. 

For this post I have complied my top tips for getting through freshers and having the best time: 
1. Drink a lot of water, if you drink a lot although alcohol is a liquid it actually makes you more dehydrated which usually leaves you feeling worse than ever the next day!
2. Plan in advance, this is a strange one but what I mean by that is see what different theme of nights there are going on and if you don't think you hack them all go to the ones which are recommended or take your fancy, or go to the ones at the start of the week as you'll feel rough by the end.
3. Eat before a night out, being a student myself I am aware that if you eat a lot before you go out it takes longer to get drunk, but it's a good idea to eat something light beforehand.
4. Make up a hangover kit: mine consists of hash browns (always something which helps me when I feel rough), paracetamol, pepsi max and vitamin tablets.

  1. Don't go overboard with the drink and get yourself a 'label' before you even start your course! Be friendly and chat to people - some people will be nervous so be kind too!

  3. If you are nervous about approaching new people, try leaving your door open while you unpack your stuff. It's a nice welcoming gesture & more people are likely to stop by to say hello!
